Chris Carter out of Astros' lineup Saturday, Jonathan Villar in at SS
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

First baseman Chris Carter is out of the Astros' lineup Saturday against the Mariners with Marwin González getting the start instead.

Carter has started at first base 20 of the Astros' 23 games this season.

With Jed Lowrie recently placed on the disabled list, Jonathan Villar will make his second straight start at shortstop on Saturday.

"Villar played very good shortstop (Friday)," manager A.J. Hinch said to the Houston Chronicle. "I want to keep him in the mix. I wanted Marwin to face Walker. He's had limited time against him, but he's had a little bit of success. We have to keep our guys fresh. One of the downsides of carrying 12 position players is the lack of rest you can get your guys. There's only three bench players, especially with (Evan) Gattis being the primary DH.

"So when I can get Carter off his feet for a day and it matches up well with Villar and Gonzo that’s good."

“Richie and Trey have been there helping me out since spring training putting the reps in and being at first base every day and working with me,” Carter said. “Their dedication and being out there working with me every day has helped.”

Carter has started 19 of the Astros' 23 games at first base this season while only starting 14 times at first in 2014.
